#MovetheVote – A Creative Call to Arms

The impact that photography has in the world is immeasurable.  Sometimes it is intentional and sometimes not so much.  Either way, a photograph with a message is a powerful tool.  So, when Executive Producer Wendy Gordon of Work Productions reached out to me to promote an opportunity for photographers to use their art to encourage voting this November, I offered to post the details on our blog and share via social media to spread the word.

Inspired by the work of local NY photographer Rachel Neville a small group decided to accept her challenge and commit to MOVE the VOTE.  Wendy says their goal is to overwhelm social media with the hashtag #movethevote and raise awareness about the urgency to vote this year in the midterms. They are starting with artists:  photographers, stylists, filmmakers and hope that they will be challenged and inspired to make great art that answers the question:

What moves you to vote.? It can be a self portrait or a series of other people – The “assignment” is open to their interpretation.

Here is the link to the website which gives more information. (and has a downloadable logo if they want to use it!).
